Help Me Save the U.S. Taxpayers $20,000,000,000

English: One Billion Dollar Artwork
One Billion Dollars

That’s twenty billion.


And that’s per year.

Every year.

We can do this and even more, one family at a time.

You, yourself, can save the U.S.$130,000 over the next 12 or so years.

All by yourself.


By homeschooling just one child.

A cool $20,000,000,000 (TWENTY BILLION) is what homeschoolers are already saving all U.S. taxpayers.

Per year.

You should join us.

    1. Thanks, Tiff!
      Funny thing is it’s been the truth for SO long! Cannot imagine what I would do with even HALF the money the schools would get for teaching my kids! Let’s see, six kids, at $10,000 per year, halved would be, umm, $30,000, right? πŸ˜†
      Maybe we should make them a deal?

    1. Half of that would be 260,000. Is that right? Wow. If they could just pay us HALF what it costs them, I’d be happy and they ought to be, too. They’d have to make it outcomes-based, though, I think, which would penalize those whose kids are disabled, I suppose. Still . . .
      You know, it would be a gamble, but THINK how many moms might begin thinking they could afford to stay home . . . and how much money the schools could save . . . and taxpayers.

  1. Lobby, yes. think how many additional schools they would NOT have to burden taxpayers with building…fewer bond issues, lower school taxes. Less crowded classrooms….all good things. the best would be children at home being taught by their parent(s).

      1. It’s a sad thing that some teachers in this country ARE being bullied by their students. It’s a growing problem. Teachers get blamed for all the woes in education. We don’t blame dentists when we get cavities, but we blame teachers when kids refuse to try to learn, can’t focus on their math because their parents divorced, etc. PARENTS need to reclaim responsibility for their children. Sadly, many won’t do that, let alone homeschool.

          1. This whole post and most of the replies are a soapbox, this time ’round, Leah, and you are welcome to climb on up here with us! πŸ˜†
            I have always known that some adults are called into the various public systems, as a mission, as a calling from God. I do not see the teacher’s roll, in that case, as furthering a wicked agenda, but as infiltrating, to do as much good as possible, to encourage the kids who are trying, to prod those who are not.
            I never forget it was a teacher who stepped in front of a child in Jonesboro, and died taking a bullet.
            From a bully.

  2. I am so very amused! Yes – absolutely true! We are doing our part to manage the national deficit!! I wanted to like this post but for some reason the like button isn’t showing up so I will just have to settle for commenting…
